EKG, que de l'analogique et du souffle ...

EKG is the duo of Kyle Bruckmann and Ernst Karel. Their music is situated between acoustic and electronic, improvised and premeditated, disruptive and meditative; it crackles and hums with precariously restrained potential energy. Combining traditional and extended wind techniques with anachronistic (non-digital) electronic processing, they carefully sculpt a bizarre yet organic soundworld of shifting tones, sudden and creeping textures, elusive suggestions of possible melody, and microscopic noise.

En concert (et peut être sur cd, un jour...), ils interprètent en plus de leurs compositions un Morton Feldman de 1973, Oboe and orchestra, avec une partition orchestrale réalisée par Ernst Karel sur un modulaire analogique Doepfer...
"Although I usually use the A-100 as an improvising instrument, for the Feldman everything will be prerecorded. Although every part is exactly in place and in tune, this is no 'switched-on- Bach'; I haven't tried to imitate the sounds of acoustic instruments, but instead to create electrical analogies..." (E.Karel)
